Why is securing keys and certificates an important PCI DSS special interest group (SIG) now? Cybercriminals are using keys and certificates to gain trusted status, be authenticated, and evade detection, bypassing other security controls and keeping their actions cloaked. And keys and certificates that protect payment card information are a particularly attractive target.

Vote for this SIG for guidance on use cases such as detecting, preventing, and remediating exploits of vulnerabilities such as Heartbleed and APTs designed to circumvent and misuse keys and certificates. If not secured, keys and certificates become a weak point in protecting payments systems and even undermine other critical security controls in place.

With the right guidance, you can simplify and ensure repeated audit success while continually defending against these trust-based attacks—and avoid being in the headlines with the next breach.
